Chicago Tribune depicts Pronger as a woman

The Chicago Tribune published this poster mocking Chris Pronger today.

  The Chicago Tribune depicted Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger as a woman, calling him "Chrissy Pronger" in its cover story Tuesday and putting a skirt on him in a photo.

   Pronger said he hadn't seen the photo.

  "I really couldn't care, to be honest with you," Pronger said. "I'm worried about playing the game."


Who wears the skirt for the Blackhawks?

  Pronger was a career-worst minus-5 in Game 5; before that, he was the best player in the Finals.

   Goalie Michael Leighton will start Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals against Chicago on Wednesday, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette indirectly announced.

    Leighton, who had three shutouts in the conference finals, leads the NHL with a 2.34 GAA in the playoffs, but he has struggled in the Finals (4.01 GAA; .864 save percentage).

    But with Brian Boucher not fully recoverd from knee injuries, it's the right choice.....the only choice.

    The Flyers will host a free pep rally outside the Wachovia Center on Wednesday from noon until 2 p.m. In addition to Flyers Alumni appearances and free hot dogs, Flyers fans can pose for photos with the Prince of Wales Trophy.
